Hulu has released a creepy new trailer for their upcoming Stephen King and J.J. Abrams series Castle Rock and it's the best trailer that they've released for it so far! This one not only gives us new footage but also offers some intriguing new details on the story, which will revolve around Bill Skarsgard's character who mysteriously appears in Shawshank prison.
I'm super excited for this series and it's set to premiere at Comic-Con later this month. I'm really hoping that I can get into that screening! I love that the series will bring together all of King's classic stories and it's going to be a lot of fun seeing how much of Stephen King's work they are going to weave into this story. There are a few things in this trailer that King fans will notice including a call back to Cujo.
Castle Rock is a 10-episode psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse. It "combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. As a series, Castle Rock aims to explore various themes and worlds, uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories."
The series is being written by Manhattan creator Sam Shaw and Dusty Thomason. It also has a great cast of actors that includes Scott Glenn (Daredevil), Andre Holland (Moonlight), Sissy Spacek (Carrie), Melanie Lynskey, Terry O-Quinn (Lost), Jane Levy (Evil Dead), and Bill Skarsgard (IT).
Hulu announced that the series will premiere on July 25th!
